What’s the best way to celebrate National Margarita Day?

With a Chocolate Margarita of course! To encourage your customers to participate in National Margarita Day on the 22nd February simply follow my favourite recipe below.  Combine it with chocolate to celebrate World Chocolate Day too on the 9th February and encourage upselling throughout the month of February to help banish the winter blues.

Chocolate Margarita

When it comes to chocolate cocktails, adding complementary flavours such as citrus makes it a little more interesting. Both tequila and orange juice are natural companions to chocolate. By adding just a hint of orange and lime, it goes beyond simply drinking spiked chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 1 ounce chocolate liqueur
  • 1 ounce cream (or half and half)
  • Splash orange juice (fresh)
  • Splash lime juice (fresh)
  • Dash chocolate bitters
  • Garnish: sugar and cocoa powder (for rim)
  • Garnish: shaved chocolate

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Rim a margarita glass: Begin by mixing equal parts of sugar and cocoa powder in a small dish until it becomes a consistent brown colour. Then wet the rim with a piece of citrus fruit by running it around the edge. Roll the wet rim in the cocoa sugar to get an even coat all the way around. Tap off any excess.
  3. In a blender, add the ice, tequila, chocolate liqueur, cream, and bitters. Squeeze in a splash each of orange and lime juices.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Pour into the prepared glass.
  6. Top with chocolate shavings.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

What is Recycled Polycolour?

Recycled Polycolour is the latest material to be used in the construction of our notice boards.

It is manufactured from 100% PET plastic, which depending on the colour of the finished material, contains up to 90% post-consumer material, plastic bottles in the main!

The Polycolour FR sheets need to be stored horizontally and kept as clean as possible during storage and manufacture and must be stored indoors in a dry cool, well ventilated area and avoid exposure to heat 65°C or greater. 

Before cutting we inspect the whole sheet for any defects, damage or soiling, we always wear clean gloves when handling the sheets to offer the best finish possible for our customers. The surface texture is very similar to felt and measures 9mm in thickness, messages may be attached using pins. It is flame retardant and has a 0.8 noise reduction rating making it perfect for schools, hospitals and offices.

This material is the best choice for those wanting to be environmentally conscious whilst still needing a notice board!

Our Polycolour notice boards can be mounted on walls and hung from ceilings using standard fixings, adhesive tapes or hook and loop. The acoustic rating also allows the boards to be used as noise reduction screens and at the end of their life they can be recycled in your PET waste stream.

The class B fire rating makes them suitable for schools, offices and public buildings, as explained below.

European Standards Class B (Highest Rating)
Class B fire resistant notice boards have been designed and tested to meet the latest European fire regulations EN13501-1:2007+A1:2009 Class B. These notice boards are suitable to be mounted in corridors, stairways, lobbies, escape routes and dead end corridors. Please note the European Class B replaces the British Standard Class O

British Standards Class 1
Class 1 fire resistant notice boards have been designed and tested to meet British Standard BS476 Part 7, Class 1. The boards have a fire resistant material covering/surface and are suitable for offices and classrooms where the risk of fire is minimal. If there is any risk of fire whatsoever then Class B is advised.
